The masterpiece collection
Christiane Vleugels lives up to her surname ‘Vleugels’, which means ‘wings’ and is related to flying. Throughout her lifetime and career, she has risen even higher toward light and love, her star in the art world following suit. Christiane is one of the top super-realistic artists working in the genre today. She’s the epitome of an authentic artist who genuinely believes in the themes she presents in her work. Additionally, she is a strong provider, with a warm personality to match, and is known as someone who enjoys daily life and embraces everyone she meets. Christiane is also a writer and the creator of the prominent brass ibex head, which is proudly on display in the IBEX headquarters.
Discussing Faith, Hope, Love , Kiki Kim, Chief Curator of the IBEX Collection comments: “This triptych is Christiane, and Christiane is this triptych. A mother of five children, she is brimming with love and good cheer, always surrounded by friends in her kitchen or painting studio. Her paintings emanate her warmth. With messages for every viewer, this series of potentially cerebral representations of the concepts of ‘faith, hope and love’, has remained every inch human and relatable. As is often the case in Christiane’s practice, the three models have all been profoundly touched by the modeling process.”
